Crap! This came out while I was on my little blogging hiatus. The Official Handbook of the Invincible Universe #2 is the second of two issues that offer a near-complete guide to the heavy hitters and bit players in Robert Kirkman's excellent Image comic Invincible. It's a loving tip of the hat to the old Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe that the late great Mark Gruenwald used to put out back in the day.
Editor/artist/ninja master Dusty Abell gathered a formidable roster of talent to write and illustrate the Invincible Handbooks, including yours truly Dave Campbell. I wrote the biographic info for 17 (I think) entries in this issue, including my favorites Science Dog, Shrinking Ray, and my man Rex Splode. Dusty's great coup was enlisting Elliot R Brown's technical support for this project. Brown was the guy who did all the technical drawings for the Marvel handbooks and is a geek genius. He worked out the science of the Invincible universe and how superpowers work, and he did a kick-ass cross section of Robot's sky cycle. That alone makes it worth getting in my book.
Anyway, it came out a couple of weeks ago and you could probably find a copy if you really loved me.
